I was talking with my son last night. He works in health care. I said most people wont die, they'll get over it.

He told me you don't get over it. It does permanent damage to the lungs.

Some people enjoy damaging their lungs.

Re: Self Quarantine

Can one self quarantine themselves w/o penalty or consequence from your employer? I work in a retail establishment. I am terrified, and rightly so. As I said in another post, my employer won't allow us to take proper precautions to protect ourselves because they don't wanna scare the customers. Man...

Coronavirus Insanity

Coronavirus. It's a serious matter and I treat it seriously. We try to limit our exposure to other people in public places. We've stopped going out to restaurants.

Heard Radio Havana on at least two frequencies (calling Turkeytop!).
